The relationship between body mass and oxygen uptake during running in humans.

Abstract

Oxygen uptake during treadmill running was measured at submaximal and maximal intensities in six different groups of endurance athletes (N = 134) and in seven endurance-trained men. The relationship between body mass (M) and oxygen uptake (VO2) was evaluated by deriving the exponent b in the equation VO2 = a.Mb. Thus, if b = 1, the oxygen uptake increases… (More)
